Latest abattoir deadline: May 30

After four years of monitoring by the Supreme Court, the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) on Tuesday said the modern Ghazipur abattoir, which has missed many a deadline, would be ready by May 20 but the apex court gave it an additional 10 days. Appearing for MCD, additional solicitor general Amarendra Saran informed a Bench comprising Justices Ashok Bhan, S B Sinha and A K Mathur that the project would be ready by May 20.
